Palermo Sicily









I have not been able to get back to normal lately.  Last Wednesday I came down with what I assume to be a nasty head cold.  Thursday, I interviewed for a special ed position at the high school. Friday I began subbing in a Kindergarten class, which I will also be doing tomorrow. Saturday, Adam and I took a trip to Palermo.  Palermo is the capital of Sicily and is located on the western side of our island.  

The day was actually very relaxing since we were on a tour bus complete with a tour guide.  It is about an 3 hour drive.  The Sicilians boggle my mind with how well preserved everything is.  The architecture is thousands of years old and yet is still being used today. Nothing I say will be able to do the places we see justice. Hopefully the photos will give you a little taste of the rich culture that surrounds us in our daily life here in Sicily.

The 1st photo was taken from base early before leaving. That is our Volcano, Mt. Etna.
